On March 7, 2015 the Scrapbook Club (an active club within the Sheep Creek Arts Council) is hosting a “Crop Fest” in support of Rowan House. This event taking place from 10am to 10pm, will not only interest dedicated “scrapbookers” and card-makers but will also appeal to community members who are invited to drop in to see what scrapbookers do. There will be hourly make and take projects available in return for donations to Rowan House.
Representatives of Rowan House will be present from 10am to 2pm to answer questions regarding the services it provides as a shelter for abused women and children in the foothills area. They will be doing a 50/50 draw with the prize being awarded at 2pm (you must be present to receive the prize). There will also be a silent auction with all proceeds going to Rowan House. The items for auction have been made available by many of the artists in various mediums, who are members of the Sheep Creek Arts Council (the silent auction will close at 9pm). Sandi Bastain from Park Lane Jewellery will also be present from 10am to 2pm and proceeds from her sales will go to Rowan House. From 5 to 8:30pm the event will be closed to the general public for the Scrapbookers’ banquet.
This event will provide both the registered scrapbookers, and anyone interested from the community, an opportunity to see what goes at a “Crop Fest” where a wide variety of material and techniques will be put to use to enhance the finished products. Please do take this as an invitation to come in to either the Sheep Creek Arts Council facility or the Valley Neighbours’ Club located at 133 Sunset Blvd West in Turner Valley (west of the 4-way stop on the south side of Sunset) on Saturday, March 7th.
